michael nutter, a long-time friend of joe biden, and republican party chairman -- a confidant of paul ryan. mayor nutter, stand by with me, and i want to get to the party chairman, and we'll be back with you. mr. chairman, thank you for joining us. i want to talk about the great burden of great expectations. there was a cnn poll, and who is going to win the vice presidential debate? the answer was biden, 35%, ryan, 55%. many many ways this mirrors what happened to the presidential debate? everyone thought president obama would win, so there's great expectations here for ryan. how much of a microscope do you think there will be on him? >> i'm not so sure about that. i mean, i don't dispute your polling there, but i think most people understand that joe bayeden has been debating for a long time. i mean, since the early 1900s. he has been debating. >> he knows his stuff. >> right. i think what you see, though, in some of that polling is that some of the, you know, joe biden as of late put his foot in his mouth a few times in very public ways. he said that the middle class was crushed under, y
of foreign policy experience, what he did to shore that up was to bring in joe biden as his vp candidate. what did mitt romney do? he brought in paul ryan who has even less, if you could imagine that, foreign policy experience except maybe perhaps voting against tougher sanctions on iran while he was in congress. as far as that argument's concerned, i think it's rather debunked. i want to read to you very quickly a quote from mitt romney from that video with the 47%. this is his -- this is his foreign policy in a nutshell. so what do you do -- this is about peace in the middle east. you say you move things along the best way you can. you hope for some degree of stability. but you recognize this is an unsolved problem and we kick the ball down the field and hope ultimately somehow something will happen and resolve it. that's what mitt romney said on foreign policy behind closed doors. whatever he says today in a couple of hours, you got to juxtapose that to that quote in the video when he thought no one else was listening. >> john, one of mitt romney's problems is the only specifics he's
those on his team, colonel joe kittenger who holds the 52-year-old record baumgartner is trying to break. he helped develop the astronaut program. >> beautiful. beautiful. >> reporter: he is no stranger to death-defying stunts. he has base jumped from the world's tallest buildings, set a record from the lowest such jump off rio's christ the redeemer statue and completed the first crossing of the english channel with a specifically made fiber wing. free falling from the edge of space is a whole new ball game. >> i guess people imagine someone diving off a diving board. you have to keep that position, don't you? because it would be very easy to spin out of control. >> the first 30 seconds you cannot use the air and that requires really stable exit. that's the reason we practice a lot of bungee jumps. >> perfect. >> just to get the right motion in to my mind. >> are you not scared in any way? >> well, i am scared because you go up to 120,000 feet which is a hostile environment. no matter how much you prepare yourself, you never know how it turns out until you do it for real. >>> just 24 day

and only vice presidential debate between joe biden and paul ryan. democratic congressman tim ryan joins us this morning from the crucial swing state of ohio where an appeals court decided on friday that early voting will be reinstated for the three days that lead up to election day. nice to see you. thank you for taking with us. >> good to be with you. >> appreciate that. let's talk a gallup poll to start with. you can see in the time since the debate, it looks as if mitt romney has gained points. president obama has lost points. i think you guys have the wrong poll up there. i have september 30th to october 7th and then october 4th through 6th as you can see, early on, the president leading by five points, now neck and neck. and then if you take a look at what did a better job in last week's debate, that was a poll question, republicans say no surprise, 97% think it was mitt romney who did a better job. i'm wondering who the 2% of republicans who thought president obama -- that would be -- independents. 70%. throw that poll up again. i think that's a critical number. how worried are you a
